Siskiyou Early Head Start is a year round program that offers comprehensive child development services to low-income families living in Siskiyou County.  Parent involvement is a key part of the program.


Center Based

Classes are small in size which allow for individualized services.  Each class of eight students is staffed by two teachers and an aide.  Research based curriculums are used to develop daily lesson plans. 


Home Based

Services are provided to pregnant women and families with children between birth and three years of age.  Families receive weekly home visits and attend group socializations twice a month.


Our Mission

It is our mission to ensure that children are ready for school and families are ready to support their children’s learning.  In partnership with our community, we provide educational resources on health, nutrition, early childhood development, prenatal health and child advocacy.  We promote strong and healthy relationships for children and families living in Siskiyou County.
